When going on a date, there are several things you should avoid.
Follow these tips to help your first date go smoothly and hopefully help you score a second one.
Be selective in the personal details you share with your date.
This may compromise your chances of having a second date.
Whether you date to find fun or to find a mate, general dating rules maximize your dating experience. Dressing nice gives you confidence and allows your personality to shine. Agree to meet him somewhere rather than allowing him to pick you up at your home.
Dating guidelines will not prevent your next date from ending in disaster, but several basic rules can help you find success in your dating career. Remember to pack breath mints and perfume in your purse. If you despise sports, suppress the temptation to act interested in football. If you avoid rushing to answer every call, he will work harder to persuade you to date him. Men are turned off when you share your life history on the first date. Carry a fully charged cell phone and cash for a cab in case you need to escape a dead end date. Alcohol inhibits your behavior and leads to embarrassment and potentially dangerous situations. In most cases, reserve sex until your date has committed to you.
With honesty, you maintain your dignity and ensure you date men who appreciate the real you. Even if you are desperate for a date on Friday night, a man who disrespects you or cannot hold a job will not be able to fulfill you in other areas. Observe how he treats his mother and animals to determine how he will treat you. Likewise, avoid dating a man who boasts about his sexual exploits or pressures you for sexual favors. If you are seeking to find a lifetime mate, date men who could potentially be marital mates.
Don’t, however, talk about past relationships or bring up very personal information.
Additionally, you don’t want to brag, as this may also turn people away.
Try to be modest in the way you talk with your date and make sure you both share the conversation equally rather than one of you doing all the talking. This will make it look like you aren’t interested in the date at all and it is very disrespectful.
It is okay to leave you phone on in case of an emergency, but you should not be texting other people or taking unnecessary phone calls when you are sharing the night with your date. If you are looking to go on a second date and hope that this relationship may potentially get serious, then lying on the first date can cause complications later in the relationship. Don’t do anything to make your date uncomfortable, such as touching them in certain areas, asking personal questions, etc.
If you are looking for a fun time, be available to date a variety of men. Your dream date may not look like the man from your fantasies.
